Hello people and welcome back to another entry of "Movie Review!" where we talk about both non animated, animated, and other forms of Movie magic. Today we shall be reviewing one of the greatest blends of Live Action and Animation, Grab your nearest ACME product and get the Singin' Sword because we're goin' straight into Toon town with.."Who Framed Roger Rabbit"!
The movie begins in 1947 L.A. with a cartoon staring our toons of the day, Roger Rabbit and Baby Herman in a short film called "What's Cookin'?". It starts out like your average Tom and Jerry or Looney Toons cartoon but nearing what would be the middle of a regular cartoon, Roger has a fridge fall on him and see's birds followed by a director yelling, "Cut!", after a brief showing that Toons and Humans interact in this world showing humans interacting with some classic Toons, But let's get back to the plot shall we, after all that is what you people have came to see! So the owner of Maroon Cartoons, R.K. Maroon hiring Private Eye, Eddie Valiant,played by Bob Hoskins, a alcoholic detective who is in depression after losing his Brother to a toon, to snoop around on the rumors that Roger's wife, Jessica, is Having a affair with Marvin Acme, owner of the Acme Corporation, he gets some pictures of them and returns showing them to Maroon and a distraught Roger, who vows after seeing the picture that he and his wife will be happy and storms off. The next day a LAPD Detective, Lt. Santino comes back and gets Eddie revealing that Acme was allegedly murdered by Roger by dropping a safe on his head..Not a toon safe mind you but a REAL 2 or 3 ton safe. While searching around the crime scene they meet the strange, Judge Doom, played by THE Christopher Loyd, who questions if Eddie was removing evidence from the scene. After a brief chat we hear a siren sound and all of a sudden a black Doge paddy wagon busts through the front entrance almost running over 4 officers and stopping suddenly, And here comes the fan base favorite, It's the Toon Patrol weasels!(For your information their names are, in order from Leader to Dumbell, Smarty(aka Smartass), Greasy, Wheezy, Psycho, and Stupid) The judge asks if *Slam* Wait what was that..?:A'ight we'll take it from here. Hey! Get outta my house! Get lost before I call the cops! ?:We are tha cops..I suggest ya amscray before we kick ya out. 'Cause we're takin' over this review runt! But this is my review! ?: I said scram, runt! Ah crud, Well taking over the review for now will be the leader of the Toon Patrol himself, Smarty "Wise Guy" Weasel..Atleast until I can get my lawyer here which could take a while So please escuse the inconvencies... Smarty:Yea dat's right So's where were ya's.. Ah here we are.
So the Judge asked if we caught the rabbit, as I explained that we's got "Deformants" all ov'a the city and after explaining to that Valiant guy what the DIP is and even showing how it 'Woik's' on us Toons by dippin' a shoe and what was gonna happen to the rabbit. After Mist'a Valiant got back to his office, Baby Herman explains that the gag warehouse guy, Acme, didn't have his will on 'im and unless it had shown up by midnight that Clover"teeth" Industries would get control of Toon Town. Inside his office Valiant finds Roger.. Greasy: I know that stupid rabbit was hiding in there! Smarty: SHADDAP YA GONNA RUIN THE 'RE-QUE'....Anyway's Valiant finds the rabbit in his office and decides to help 'im out aft'a a bunch of mishaps. So we decided to pay Mist'a Valiant a visit and heard the rabbit was in his office so.. Wheezy:*cough, cough* So ya let me use my Thompson*cough, hack* and blow his door down. Smarty: No "schtick" "Shamrock"... Anyway we searched around the office and after a..Ahem, 'Brief' "irrigation" I got a bar of soap shoved into my mouth and after AGAIN reminding these maroons ta stop laughin' for the bajillionth time We left. After givin' us the slip Valiant went to his 'Goil'friend's bar, unknown ta him we were hiding out in the sewer below waitin' for him. Stupid: Duh, We stunk for days even after we died! Smarty: Shaddap Stupid, before I decide to make ya all shaddap! Anyway after a brief bar fight with Mist'a Valiant after getting the Judge, he sprung the cab ,and also was one of the foist times we've heard Wheezy talk without a raspy voice, and he and rabbit drove off wit' us right behind..And we would've got 'em too if it weren't for that stupid cab being able to do all kinds of wacky stuff. So we heard that later that night Valiant snuck into Maroon's studios and had a 'friendly' chat with him. Of course tha Judge had to tie up one more loose end with 'im too and ya all know how dat went. Psycho: Yea, One more loose end tied up with a bullet, HEHEHEHEEHEhihihiiih-*WHACK* Smarty: The next time I hear one of yous speak while I'm doin' dis,I'm gonna throw ya out tha window.. So Valiant thinks it's Jessica after seeing her flee the scene and chase her into Toon Town, After confrontin' 'er the broad reveals that it was the Judge who killed Acme and Maroon. But they weren't quick enough when fleein' 'cause we caught 'em and brought 'em to the ACME factory so we could give 'em a final 'sunrise' by revealin' we were gonna Dip all of Toon Town and build a freeway in it's place. So we searched both of 'em..Well Greasy searched the dame and got his hand stuck in a literal Booby trap. Greasy: I still have it too! *WHACK* Smarty: One last time...Try me!
Anyway after a while the rabbit busts out from a drain pipe and nearly cause's the whole plan ta backfire but Greasy dropped a ton 'a bricks on 'is head. at the exact time he said "Ton of Bricks" too! but after we tied the Rabbit and the dame up and lifted 'em up high so when we bust through the wall we'd Dip them. But Valiant pulled a circus acted and made all of ya's laugh yaselves to "dept" and sent me crotch foist into tha dip..Still have nightmare's 'bout dat..But so we've died and we're watching from the top of the buildin' and Doom get's flattened by a Steamroller. Even we thought that was It but turns out the Judge was tha toon that Killed Valiant's broth'a so after a pretty decent brawl Valiant got the best of 'im and got him dipped..Last we saw of Doom he was goin' down the drain, never did find out what happened to 'is ghost. Turns out a love lett'a the rabbit wrote for his wife was the will and it left Toon Town to the Toons..Talk about irony 'eh? but the Dip mobile got destroyed by a toon train and happy ever aft'a for all the toons and Valiant.. And we were dead for anoth'a 40 years.. *SLAM* I'm back suckas! AND I BROUGHT A LAWYER AND A COUPLE REAL POLICE OFFICERS! NOW GET OUTTA MY HOUSE!
Smarty:Crud... Well we's finished the review for ya's so now all that's left is for ya final thoughts. Dat was fun, A'ight boys, Let's amscray before we get arrested a second time..
Well, This film was great for me and a lot of other people would agree, So It does have very few problems with it, non existant problems unless you want to go EXTREMELY deep into the story and it was kinda a problem for this review that the Weasels dropped by. But It is a great movie that I give a 10/10. A must own movie! Thank you for your time and as always I'll see you, At the next Review!
